24-Year-Old Alpine Meadows Employee Killed in Ski AccidentBy Michael Frank on November 16th, 2012
Annalise Kjolhede died after an accident Saturday while backcountry skiing. She sustained serious trauma to her head and neck and died of the injuries Tuesday night. Alpine Meadows wasn’t open yet (it opens December 7), but because the ski area operates on Forest Service land it is nearly always open for public use. Kjolhede was skiing with friends near Wolverine Bowl when she hit a rock beneath the snow — a genuine hazard when snowpack is light. She was wearing a helmet but still suffered a traumatic brain injury. Via RJG.com.
